Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was undertaken by Oakford Archaeology between September 2012 and August 2013 on the River Clyst to Bowling Green Marsh Road cycle way, Topsham, Devon (SX 9715 8789 to SX 9757 8758). The site lies in an area of archaeological potential on either side of the River Clyst, in an area immediately south-east of Topsham. The topsoil stripping for the cycle path adjacent to the access at Topsham was monitored in September 2012. This covered an area 100m long and 28m wide, extending to a depth of 0.5m. The works for the new bridge and boardwalk were monitored between May and August 2013. The southern abutment was 6m x 3m x 1.5m, and the southern pier base 8m x 8m x 2.5m., while the northern pier base was 6m x 6m x 2.5m and the northern abutment was 6m x 6m x 1.5m. Elsewhere the route of the cycleway was constructed on a raised boardwalk supported on piles close to the railway embankment. No early archaeological features or deposits were exposed, with a single 19th century drainage ditch uncovered at the northern end of the site. The works also identified a thick layer above the alluvium which almost certainly represents a deposit of made ground associated with the reclaiming of the ground in 1844.
